REVEALED! Why AS Roma could decide not to make El Shaarawy’s move permanent

27 April at 18:34

Stefan El Shaarawy has had a tremendous impact at AS Roma, having scored six goals (and two assists) in his first nine games with the giallorossi.

The Pharaoh, however, has been slowing down a bit during the last month and AS Roma are evaluating his future at the club.

AS Roma can make the 23-year-old’s move permanent for a fee of € 13 million. The giallorossi would prefer to spend less than that amount and change the payment method they had already agreed with AC Milan.

The FFP rules prevent the club from spending money before the end of June and the club would need to sell one of their players before signing a new one. Tonny Sanabria seems the most likely to leave the Olimpico before the end of the season.

Doubts on the player’s fitness are also mounting, even this season has been his best in terms of injuries.
Two reasons which could convince AS Roma to make El Shaarawy’s loan move permanent are his status of player raised in an Italian club’s academy as well as his extreme versatility as he can cover lot of roles in the attack: from winger to support striker.

However, with Adem Ljajic and Juan Manuel Iturbe who are set to be heading back to the Olimpico after their loan spells at Inter and Bournemouth respectively, Spalletti will have more than one offensive player at his disposal and could decide to drop the Pharaoh to give Iturbe one last chance with the giallorossi shirt.

In case AS Roma will decide not to make El Shaarawy’s move permanent, the player will move back to AC Milan but will be looking for a new club as he doesn’t want to stay with the rossoneri anymore.
